    DD user here, and this thing happened me tonight. In my cause, the steering wheel, do not reset to his main position, but it turned itself left at max speed with a big bang, when I quit to the main menu and yes, this is not only a HUGE problem to sim racers, but also to Studio 397, because its a question of time to someone sue studio 397 if this problem is not fixed.

    I suggest killing the FFB while on menu.

    I have the same issue with the fanatec DD2, it's dangerous.
    Such things never happened in AMS2/ACC/AC/DR2 (other titles that I play), not a single time in the few years that I race, only in RF2 it happens.

    I don't agree that it's "entirely your responsibility" as a sim racer. This thing should be fixed or accidents will happen for sure.

    I was caught out yesterday with my SC2 Pro that I run at the full 26Nm - I restarted an offline race while testing mirror settings on a packed grid and boom… Caught me totally by surprise as we don’t get it on normal race starts.

    Fortunately no damage done though.

    While we’re here…. At the opposite end of the spectrum we are *still* (it’s always been there in my experience) getting FFB failure when, for example, quitting to pits in a practice session and then immediately going back out on track. I’ve had a dedicated button assigned to “reset FFB’ for this purpose for years (and with two completely different wheelbases, so don’t blame them….)

    …and why, oh, why can’t we have an in-car FFB % control?

    Has these problems been acknowledged by someone from S397 or someone needs to go to Discord to make sure it’s acknowledged ?

    It's already said multiple times.
    And even specifically if this also needs to be posted in the bug section to get the right amount of attention.
    You could try to send a PM.
    I gave up to be honest, not my problem.
    Feedback seems to be a real oneway system at S397.

    I have also been experienced this, DD2 user here.
    I almost damaged my wrist, as I run quite high output on the wheel base.
    What I have been doing to prevent the problem is to never go to the menu before having the wheel fully static on “zero” position.

    I had the same problem with an AI race last night.
    Restarted a Fpro race with standing start, and the wheel was lined up correct before start, but my wheel turned 180 degrees.
    Normally I have a firm grip but this one time it took me by surprise.

    Maybe the solution could be something like delaying FFB and activate it with a soft curve at race start?

    As i suggested fade in ffb forces from any type of game-pauses should be an easy workaround.

    Right. Problem is I ‘m not sure if posting here is even worth it since no one from S397 seems to read it, let alone bother responding.
